Howdy Summer!!  Lori here today and I have to tell you that with the high humidity we have been having lately in New Jersey I feel like I am at the desert!!  So I just had to make this card!  LOL!  For this 5 x 7 inch card I went with a lot of layers and a lot of distressing but I got the look that I wanted.  For this card I cut out the Whispers Southwestern Desert die (which is out of stock right now, but check back soon to see if it is back in stock) and I cut it out in 5 different colors of paper scraps and pieced it all together and placed it on some gray paper and added the blue marble paper for the sky.  Then I distressed the edges and cut out the word Howdy using the Curly Fries Font and added that to the sky.  I then mounted that piece onto a colored piece of vellum paper and cut the edges with my torn edge scissors and then I mounted that on some terra cotta color paper and distressed the edges and then I took a piece of ivory paper and rubbed distress ink all over that and that mounted the rest of the card on top.  So how do you like all the layers?  I really like the distressed look!
